The community, clinical and management rotations include 6 weeks of supervised research because practice requires outcomes research and evidence-based decision-making. Interns each complete a pilot research project to enhance their community placement program and presents it in a poster session at the New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics meeting. Interns engage in clinical nutrition research. They also plan and conduct more autonomously a ‘problem-solving' management research project. In this concentration, interns develop the critical thinking and research skills needed for practice.
